Cut the Cost of Prescription Meds

Prescription drugs aren’t cheap, and the prices for the same medication can vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. Prescription meds are much like other things we buy.  Shop around and do a little comparison pricing and you could find it cheaper.

The website, FrugalPharmacies.com does the work for you. It lets users search for the best price for hundreds of the most common drugs in a matter of seconds. USNews.com has these other strategies for saving money at the pharmacy:

 

  • When possible, buy generic versions of the prescriptions.
  • Buying in bulk can lead to discounts and lower co-pays.
  • Online pharmacies can be a viable option, but be careful that they’re safe.
  • And buy through the mail. Insurance companies sometimes offer better deals.

Health, not money, is the most important factor when it comes to prescription drugs, but sometimes consumers don’t have to choose.
